Google Glass Continues To Get Updates But Not Yet Available For Consumers

The gadget users have been since long waiting for the Google Glass to be made available commercially despite it being not so popular technically. The company’s AR headset, which is the original product failed to create enough curiosity and also went through a bit of controversy due to its awkward looks. But the search engine is in no mood to give up. Google has now transitioned it to the consumer market with the Glass Enterprise Edition and now the Glass is getting another upgrade.



The new AR glasses have a few improvements and has a USB-C for faster charging, Android Oreo, Bluetooth 5.0 and the new Qualcomm Snapdragon XR1 chip for improved computer vision and machine learning. The new chip can help to save power while simultaneously boosting performance. The Glass team has also joined hands with Smith Optics on special safety frames while opening the product up for more work environments.

It surely seems like the Glass is coming along, becoming mainstream might not be possible as it is still not a consumer gadget. Meanwhile, the technology is progressing and more powerful computer vision is now showing up all over, that includes smartphone cameras to self-driving cars. For now when compared the Glass Enterprise Edition 2 and the Hololens2 by Microsoft, the Enterprise still remains a safe bet, at least for the time being.

Most of the average consumers who need AR tools will not need them constantly on-hand as the rudimentary AR tools begin appearing on the smartphones and they have a little reason to buy a $1000 plus device. For a few customers who still need to buy a pair of glasses with built-in camera to share footage with friends, there are much more affordable Snapchat Spectacles that can easily meet their needs. Despite the fact that the Google Glass gets a big upgrade, we can expect a future when augmented reality glasses can be used in the day to day lives.

Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood Movie Review

Say Goodbye to "Hollywood"

Moments of Quentin Tarantino's new movie "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" suggest a calmer and more reflective side of the filmmaker. Tarantino is known for his unrelenting violence and rapid-fire dialogue exchanges, but early scenes in his latest movie show him taking a bit of a breath. It's a nice touch, but Tarantino cannot help giving into his worst indulgences as a director; the movie ultimately succumbs to those, and it erases all hints of goodwill that may have been built up earlier in the film.

Mase - Harlem World Music Album Reviews

Each Sunday, Pitchfork takes an in-depth look at a significant album from the past, and any record not in our archives is eligible. Today, we revisit the debut album from Mase, an icon of the shiny suit era who turned the Bad Boy throne into a recliner.
Mase floats skyward wearing golden goggles and a shiny suit that looks like a tricked-out air traffic control vest. His rise through an ultramodern wind tunnel feels remarkably symbolic as Kelly Price lip-syncs Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out” on a monitor behind him. He’s wearing the same diamond-studded Jesus piece the Notorious B.I.G. had on when he was murdered. As he swaggers through the futuristic Hype Williams-directed music video for 1997’s “Mo Money, Mo Problems,” histories are being rewritten in real-time; the nature of rap as an epic retail commodity is growing. It is a eulogy and a coronation all at once. It is Bad Boy rising from the ashes.
